Hinting at Rahul Gandhi, Gadkari Slams Dynasty Politics


INDORE, Feb 18 (PTI): In an obvious attack on Congress general secretary Rahul Gandhi, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president Nitin Gadkari said on Thursday that his party did not believe in dynastic politics.

In his first presidential address at the BJP leadership meet here, he thundered that neither his father nor grandparents were prime ministers.

"I was a simple worker of a party and today I am its president. This can happen only in the BJP. The BJP is not like other political parties where dynasty rules," Gadkari said.

"My father was not the prime minister of the country, neither were my maternal great grandfather nor grandmother. We are a party with a difference."

Gadkari's remarks were clearly aimed at Rahul Gandhi, whose father Rajiv Gandhi, grandmother Indira Gandhi and great grandfather Jawaharlal Nehru were all prime ministers.

Before his speech, the national council ratified the presidentship of Gadkari. Senior leaders hailed his ascendance and garlanded him. Gadkari was named the BJP president in December. He took charge this month.

    Mr. Nakul Shetty, You have misunderstood my comment. Kindly read once again and comment again. Any way I will answer to your comment. I dislike to work illegal jobs if suitable job is not available I shall beg and that is the dignity of life rather robbing, cheating, deceiving, killing, poisoning the minds of the people, creating divide in the society. Concerning to charity it is not for you to know what I give or what I don’t give it is for my God to know. Where is your third option? My God has blessed me abundantly with wisdom and knowledge and I live for Him, I love Him, I praise Him, I worship Him, I glorify Him and I trust in Him Amen.

    RT Shetty, u are entitled to have your own opinions, but u cannot hide the truth. When Nehru inherited India from British, it was rich in culture but poor in economy. They had to build the future of India from the scratch. When U build a tower or building, u first build the foundation which needs to withstand the full weight of the structure-but it is invicible as its inside the ground-but u will only notice the structure above ground for which BjP is unduly given credit to. Without the strong foundation laid by our forefathers this achievement would not have been possible by any other govt, that succeeded congress. Remeber who put first sattelite in space, who detonated nuclear device first, who ushered in color telivision,who gave fillip to IT sector, who liberalised Trade, who gave India the stature it enjoys in the world stage. Vajpayee detonated the nuclear devices for which Rajiv Gandhi gave permission in 1987 itself, after calling the scientists & gave finances to develop the capability. Without knowing history & glorious past record of congress people like u make unfounded statements oft repeated by BJp to fool gullible people. Please note World Bank had warned Indian govt at the time of Vajpayee(2004)-that India is in serious finacial trouble as it has borrowed more money than the economy can sustain.Only the remittances by our countrymen who are NRI's saved India the blushes it had encountered in the past(Chandrashekar had to pledge gold to get finace)Jai Ho People

    Rajesh Rao, Mangalore, don't u know civilised debate or behaviour? Why get personal? This is not a forum to exhibit ur HIGH INTELLECTUAL STANDARDS OR PASS VALUE JUDGEMENT on comments of others. I never said anything about Rahul Gandhi becoming PM. Read carefully again as u seem to think u r a great intellectual. I merely asked why BJP is adopting double standards? U have no problem in applauding Maneka & Varun Gandhi or Yeddyurappa & Raghavendra, forget the Bellary Reddy Brothers, Sriramulu, Udasi & Umesh Katti.

    For argument's sake, if Rahul is destined to become PM, can anybody prevent it? Rahul's mother Sonia, daughter Priyanka or Rahul even could have got any position in Govt if they really wanted. In fact, when PM's post was hers for asking, Sonia declined to accept. Whatever may be her reasons, she never allowed herself to be projected as PM as even Advani did. Of course, I know Advani is eminently qualified & deserves to be PM if somebody like Charan Singh, Chandrashekar, I K Gujral & our own Deve Gowda could.

    BUT PLEASE NEVER STOOP TO MAKING PERSONAL & SILLY COMMENTS.

    shahnawaz kukkikatte, again you are going at a tangent. The Mughal rule could not go ahead without the powerful Hindu's. They had to work hand in hand to administer the land. Talking about Dewan Purnaiah, Tipu wanted to convert him, but it was Tipu's mother who instructed Tipu not to do so. So..was Tipu a mama's boy? or was he worried that he will instigate the Hindu's in a bad way?. The Hindu's were not a bunch of Idiot's for your information. I hope you give us the credit for some intelligence. Alexander fought Porus the Hindu King in 326 BC much before Islam ever came into existence. Hindu's had fantastic armies back in the day and this added with phenomenal culture/arts. Coming back to our own Emperor Krishna Devaraya, he was the last of the south Indian Hindu domain when the north, hyderabad and Bijapur was covered by the Mughal's and their pets, the Ali Jha's and Bhamini's ( let me not put you in that category, it will be like equating the current egyptian with the pharoh's ). So how did the empire die. His next in line, hired muslims into the administration and they joined hands with the Bhamini's and killed their king. The battle of Rakassathangadi sealed the fate. So my friend don't think we are all a bunch of Bhoota worshiping ignorant people who are steeped in religious dogmas and yes the caste system.

    Mr Nakul shetty, you pointed out that past conversion (into Islam/Christianity) was not out of free will but by brute force. If one has to agree to your stateent/observations, then present India would have been made up of more than 80% from muslim/chrstian community. The present ratio of less than 20% of india population is made of muslim/christians/others itself refute your observtion is far from truth and you are just following RSS literatures for your information/knowledge who are masters in spreading unfounded and malicious propaganda against muslims and chrstians of this county.

    Though India was ruled by muslim rulers for more than 1000 years, muslims are still less than 15% of our country's population and British/French/Portuguese who are christian ruled us for nealry 400 years, christians are less than 5% of current population. Can you pleae justify your accusations. Secondly not all muslim rulers destroyed hindu places of worship (very unforutnate), most of them have given grants to hindu temples (very good). Thats the only reason you will find many fold more temples in India than masjids/churches. But in RSS literature you will find mulsims/christian rulers destroyed unimaginable number of hindu temples and forcibly converted hindus, which is a white lie. I request you to give to the readers list/places of worship destroyed by hindu/chrstian rulers. But I can say RSS destoyed babri masjid in post independence India which is most unfortunate.

    Do you consider working as something that is not suitable??. Do you live off of charity ?. I have given three options - I think the "good people" work so that their children have a good life, this is not bad .. but we continue this in a democratic ruling as well, which is not fair.

    Shetre, I am proud for what I am and I dont feel remorse for it. But you, the so called majority are dictated and ruled socially (not politically) by the so called manuvadis who are minority within your own social system. Whatever you do, you cant change your status from bunts/vokkaliga to higher caste. You cant reach your Gods without these manuvadis because God created these manuvadis to to be mediator between you and your God and God created you just to serve these upper caste minorities by being their buntas, or vokkaligas, farming their land, taking a little for self and giving bigger portion to them. It is Mrs Indira Gandhi's land reform act of 1969 "OOLUVAVANE HOLEDA ODEYA" has made you rich land lords. Or else still you people would have been just farmers working for these manuvadis in their lands. You should be grateful to this Mrs Mrs Gandhi who has made you rich and land lords overnight. Now you cant see her grand son raising to fame...What a shame.. Neither I cant be that ungrateful nor my dharma asks me to do so.

    Dear Nakul Shettre,
    I agree with Mr. Shanavaz. Our Independence was delayed due to the alliance of RSS people with British. Their man Naturam Godse killed great Mahatma, which shows their consiparacy, sheer jealous and intolerance. Today they are creating fear phobia among the minorities by attacking their places making them suffer and withdraw them from the mainstream. What do you call for this type of rule? They created chaos and infused people hatred and intolerance in the name of Ram Mandir and pulled down Babri Masjid in day light defying law and order. There after they keep this problem alive and did not build Ram Mandir even during the term of their rule in the country. What do you call for this type of politics. This is destructive politics dividing the nation in the name of religion, diverting people's attention from the main burning problems like poverity, unemployment, price hiking etc., to make their leaders and party money. Crores of rupees was collected from India and abroad in the name of Ram Mandir. Where is that moeny now? Who is cheating and stealing in India?
    Mr. Rahul Gandhi is a young visioner like us who dream about economic stronger, self sufficient India. He cannot cheat like Nakul shettar or Gadkari as he relenquished ministerial offers and his mother refused to beocome prime minister of the country. BJP is scared at the popularity of Mr. Rahul Gandhi and now people know who is playing what politics. BJP will not come to power again.

There are several of them in our country who follow righteous ways and are not in this category. Hence your sentence we are always is not a correct word rather most of us/some of us will be suitable. Mr. Nitin Gadkari realized the popularity of Mr. Rahul Gandhi otherwise he would have not criticized him as dynasty politics or he might have been dictated by the RSS or else Gadkari didn’t find another way. Hence in my opinion by criticizing he has increased the popularity ratings of Mr. Rahul Gandhi. Rahul Gandhi sacrificed minister post. Recently Mr. Gadkari followed Rahul’s path of interaction and consuming food with the dalits.

    shahnawaz Saibere .. you are going on a tangent and your accusations are baseless.
    The fundamental's of democracy is not followed when a party is run by a family. Unfortunately, this is what happens in India, we are always working, cheating or stealing for our children. The "aam admi" is only for the speeches. No one cares about them. Dewan Purnaiah also wanted to have a clause where his position is passed on to his progeny, however this was denied.
    The minority, majority divide done by the politics ( specifically congress ) has led to a situation where we revert back to our beliefs and try to garner support that way. If you think that all hindu's are with BJP, they why don't they come to absolute power, your minority vote is insignificant relatively speaking. If you had a muslim league as a party, we would have every one of you support it to power and god forbid, you were the majority.
    In India, there is a lot of tolerence compared to most other parts of the world, althought recently we are seeing a shift in this attidute. In my opinion, this has brought about by the polititians themselves in a ploy to appease the minority. This is a typical shift when minority become majority due to reservations and other appeasements. This is what we call a democratic suicide. However, India is the oldest democracy and with all these issues it is still a place I would live.
    Regarding the division of India, it was that Nehru perhaps that had an eye for the PM post and not the RSS. However, did Jinnah not get a muslim country for himself and his men?. Couldn't he have avoided the divide and sucked up ?. The same goes to Nehru as well. All this hate would not have been there.
    Look at your s, you have started dwelling more on the sanathan dharma that you may loose track of your original belief. Please stick to islam and get the most out of it. Trying to poke at someone elses belief is the lowest thing a man can resort to. The holy book's, caste system or the path to god is something that has been generated much before we were born. We can only change it from now on, but what is done is done and you are harping on that. This is why people target "conversion". We cannot alter your past, you will not convert now as you have the freedom to deny or fight back, but back in the day conversion was not out of freewill but brute force.

    Dynasty politics or political dynasty does not matter at all. One who can govern with clean hand, unite people, sacrifice ones self, selfless ambition, respect followers of all religion, make India proud in the international arena can rule this country which has unity in diversity. We certainly dont need lessons from Gadkari or RSS. These RSS and Gadkaris forefathers/manuvadis didnt fight the British Raj. On the contrary served as British agents licking thier feet.

    If at all Independence was delayed, its soley due to the alliance these RSS people had with British. Now these worthless people were talking about dynasty politics. These people actively supported division of India with the fear that Jinnah might become the PM. They wanted to make India a hindu fundamental theocratic state. Thats why they opposed the chairmanship of BR Ambedkar to the consitution commission. The even didnt approve the preamble of the constitution which says " Peoples democratic secular republic state of India". Now its high time these organisations are exposed so that people of this country know the truth and agenda behind formation of BJP. BJP is nothing but a political arm of RSS with an ideology of preserving caste system and for promoting manu culture and aryan religion. They dont believe in sanatha dharma which says karma and dharma.

    They only believe in arya dharma which only says janma. Even today in BJP ruled states, manuvadis are enjoying highest status with lot of grants from government.

He would be 4th PM from his clan if he become one. God forbid this. By sheer destinty he has born in first family of India, which ruled and ruined our country. Its foolish of you to expect better adminstration and pin your hopes and aspiration on person who has not proved his mettle till date other than flexing muscles with Ms.Mayawatiji, whom i respect more than these white attired showoffs.

    Well, if dynasty politics is bad, why did BJP encourage Maneka Gandhi& son, Pramod Mahajan & his son, daughter, Gopinath Munde & daughter to name only a few. In Karnataka, apart from the Reddy brothers' & family, Sriramulu & sister, C M Udasi & son, Umesh Katti & brother and to top it all, Yeddyurappa & son and many other leaders have encouraged their kith & kin. Don't have double standards or give lame excuses. Adopt uniform policy. Merely because Vajpayeee did not marry or Advani did not encourage his son- daughter, does not mean Gadkari's party can say or do anything and criticise others.

    Mr.Nitin Gadkari for your information fathers of leaders like Shastriji,PVN,Chandrashekhar, Devegowda were not the prime minister of the country. Then also these leaders become prime minister of this country. You are talking about simple worker, whether Devegowda was able or not that is the different thing but as a ordinary leader he becomes prime minister.This is happens only in democracy. For become BJP president it is not require that one who simple worker or Big leader, only RSS approval is required!!!. This can happen only in the BJP.
    And about dynastic politics no party in this country exception for that, including your party. Just see Karnataka BJP, Yeddy's son, Reddy Brothers, Udasi's son. You mean this is not dynastic politics???. Mr.Gadkari you are the National president of BJP, so please verify whole national politics don't see only one family politics.

    More than anybody, it is the top leadership of BJP who acknowledge (in their thinking & talking) the Nehru/Gandhi name is more powerful than Congress.
    Last but not least, BJP's religious funda(mental) nexus/tilt wont't give them an opportunity to rule the Secular India. (one day for sure BJP leaders will bite & bark at each other like Mad dog)

    It is true that Dynasty does not happen in BJP but a poor school teacher becorems as rich as giving sufficient pocket money to his son to snort drugs rolled up in a Rs. 1,000/- note !

    Good try. You got copy many more things besides spending time in a Dalit's house to prove your patriotism.

    Gadkarisab, you have become the president of BJP. Your children, grand children and great grand children can become BJP presidents if only you train them to be able leaders and RSS supports them. In a democracy any qualified citizen can become prime minister if the people want him. It is his constitutional right and not dynastic right.

    BJP & their allies are simply jealous on Sonia Gandhi's family. One should admire Gandhi family for inherited leadership qualities they have. Sonia or Rahul did not beg position, but party members pleaded them to be leaders of Congress Party. What’s wrong with it when Congress Party members accepted? Should they refuse?? Are they expecting ‘Ga’ Family members to take Sanyasa or Retirement from the politics? In fact, Sonia Gandhi refused ‘PM’s post despite she had strong support all members. God bless Sonia & Rahul.

    Gadkari should first introspect, here in karnataka we have entire fly in BJP, 3 brothers, 1 sister of one reddy fly, Father and son's so on. Gadkari should shutup. Though it could have been better with congress, BJP can not match even one percent of what congress has done. They are good in slogans, let them be that way.

    Dear Gadhkariji, Please remember that we are a democracy and our leaders are elected. Therefore if the Gandhi clan gets re-elected what is your problem?. Remember in a democracy the voters are the kings....and the kings have decided that the Gandhi's are better than you. Please accept this fact and get on in life, instead of crying or giving out statements in frustration.

    We all believe in "Kismat". May your kismat also make you one day PM of this country and may your children, grand children and great grand children rule this country. All the best.

    But without reason don't blame for dynasty. This country's eductaed people very well know and then only they vote for deserved candidate. If you do betterment for the people our vote is for you only. Fisrt and formost important step is stop deviding the country by religion, culture and food. (even other problems also prevails) Then see your party will definately rule.

    Dear Gadkariji,
    Whether you like it or not, the Indian aam admi likes it, that is why they have been ruling India for all these years. Whether you believe in dynastic rule or not, Congress dynastic rule is far better than any other rule for India.It is Nehru family's calibre, charishma, quality, ability,secularism and standard which has kept India still undivided. Be cool Gadkari.
